Part of the legitimate rape caucus

Posted in Crazy Weapons, WhiteManistan at 11:41 am by George Smith

Joined with the electromagnetic pulse caucus in the House. Trent Franks, famous last week for being part of the zoo of barely sentient animals from The Pit, aka GOP crackpots who opine on rape, in Politico: “[Electromagnetic pulse] has the potential to be the ultimate cybersecurity threat because it can take our source of power […]

WhiteManistan’s Army

Posted in Ted Nugent, WhiteManistan at 1:33 pm by George Smith

The UN’s recent approval of an arms trade treaty has, predictably, whipped WhiteManistan’s crazies into a now bog standard frenzy over its alleged conspiracy to take away America’s guns. Before I get to it, the NYT explains what the treaty is really about: Although implementation is years away and there is no specific enforcement mechanism, […]

All the weird, angry people…

Posted in Crazy Weapons, WhiteManistan at 12:48 pm by George Smith

Steve at Secrecy blog alerted me to Sunday’s episode of The Simpson’s, Homer Goes to Prep School, which pillories a subject familiar to blog readers. In it Homer Simpson goes to the local bar where he runs into a kook who asks if he’s ready for a world gone WROL, Without the Rule of Law. […]

Cult of EMP Crazy recedes

Posted in Crazy Weapons, Culture of Lickspittle, Psychopath & Sociopath, WhiteManistan at 3:22 pm by George Smith

When Roscoe Bartlett, mainstay of the Cult of Electromagnetic Pulse Crazy, had his House career ended in the November election it dealt a heavy blow to the lobbying group. With Newt Gingrich being run off the national stage yet again, two of its most vigorous personalities were cut down. Although Bartlett never got any legislation […]

The WhiteManistan routine

Posted in Ted Nugent, WhiteManistan at 9:11 am by George Smith

Today starts with Ted Nugent because he is so emblematic of the twin problem of WhiteManistan and the gun lobby. In his many public statements and columns Nugent has never shown even the slightest basic human decency. And this weekend was no exception. Nugent showed no believable sorrow over the Newtown massacre in an interview […]

Down in the Bunker in Whitemanistan at Midnight

Posted in Extremism, Imminent Catastrophe at 4:34 pm by George Smith

It is not right to coddle the beliefs of idiots or encourage their manias. Doing it puts you on the side of evil, even if it’s just television and you need the money. ‘Doomsday Preppers’: The craziest bunkers we’ve seen so far: \ Larry doesn’t want “possible marauders” stealing his stuff in a post-apocalyptic free-for-all, […]

One reason I gave up cable

Posted in Extremism, Psychopath & Sociopath, Ted Nugent at 10:46 am by George Smith

Basic cable, as Media Matters notes today, is rotted. It features a slew of name channels, all doing reality shows which range from intelligence-insulting to the outright nauseating. They cater to the worst of bottom-out-of-sighters in the country, most notably this year, the total dogshite demographic called “preppers.” Or part of the Ted Nugent/Psychopath Vote. […]

The mainstreaming of hate

Posted in Extremism, Imminent Catastrophe, Psychopath & Sociopath, Ted Nugent at 2:33 pm by George Smith

Laboratory of democracy, example #1. And some experiments yield results that are no good. The current Republican Party has mainstreamed all the tropes of “The Turner Diaries,” the premier piece of race hate fiction in this country. I don’t say this lightly. But after the last four years of the Obama presidency, it’s quite clear. […]

GE, over the land

Posted in Culture of Lickspittle at 10:47 am by George Smith

Starting at mid-week, DD’s semi-old “GE & Jeff” tune jumped about 700 views, making it the most popular thing I’ve done, a position formerly held by “That’s Logistics,” a spoof of UPS made after the failed al Qaeda toner cartridge bomb plot. (The latter continually benefits from people looking for the “logistics song” when UPS […]

The dogshit that is National Geographic

Posted in Culture of Lickspittle at 2:09 pm by George Smith

It’s hard to differentiate the many Rocky Mountain ranges of dogshit in American society. What parts of it, or which shows, are the worst? Somehow, this year, National Geographic has distinguished itself in this matter. First, there was the cable tv “hit,” the pandering Doomsday Preppers, monetizing the pemmican-stockpiling armed-to-the-teeth white trash right wing kooks […]
